Dispute Resolution & Litigation

Our litigation team always helps and encourages our clients to avoid litigation. However, when disputes do arise, we also counsel our clients on how to prepare their cases and remain well-positioned in the matter. In instances where litigation cannot be avoided, we ensure that our clients have the highest level of representation. We know that our clients want thorough knowledge, preparation, experience, and resources at their disposal in litigation and alternative dispute processes.

Our team leader, Louis M.H. Belzil, Q.C. is a leading litigation practitioner who has spoken and written on numerous legal topics. For over twenty years, Louis has appeared in all levels of Alberta courts. During this time, he has argued a wide variety of cases, making him one of Edmonton’s most experienced civil litigators. Please browse his biography under the heading “Our People” for a list of some of those cases.

Our other team members enhance our ability to provide excellent service to our clients. Matt A. Pruski has also appeared before all levels of court in Alberta and has a number of reported decisions to his name.

In the burgeoning era of electronic discovery and digital documents, our firm has committed fully to investing in the  infrastructure that is a critical component of modern litigation. We are particularly proud that our office was the first in Edmonton to conduct a civil “e-Trial”.  All of our cases are fully digitized and readily accessible by our lawyers in this format, ensuring that clients save money and time that would otherwise be wasted by organizing and handling paper-based files.

Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution team members are Louis M.H. Belzil, Q.C., Matt A. Pruski. Sandy Magee, Harjit Toor, and Lyndsay Slack.
